We are excited to develop and nurture new talents and our future aviators to be part of the aviation ecosystem. So, come and join us!”
Specialised in ensuring a steady talent pipeline in aviation-related fields, the Engineering Training Department offers various training and courses to those seeking to be aviation maintenance personnel with various engineering and maintenance training courses available.

The training will serve as a stepping stone for the young graduates to also become corporate leaders. Today, we have over 400 aircraft registered in Malaysia, and we are expecting this number to grow in the next five years, which makes the demand for future talents.
